As Michigan gears up for Saturday's Final Four match against Syracuse, members of the legendary Fab Five have been popping up and about showing support for their old school.  Now a member of another group of superheroes is publicly rooting for this group to take home the NCAA title this year. Hugh Jackman — the Hollywood star who plays the Marvel Comics character Wolverine in the X-Men film series — tweeted his support for his favorite team, who else? — the Michigan Wolverines. This is Wolverine saying "c'mon univ. of mich wolverines!!! This is your year. Trey...crush it BUB! #thewolverine#FinalFour @umichbball — Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) April 5, 2013 Jackman plays the clawed mutant Wolverine — also known as Logan — in the highly successful series of five X-Men-based movies and one, "The Wolverine," which is, coincidentally, being released this summer. The fan favorite Wolverine is mostly known for his long metal talons and fast healing abilities, but it is his "beserker rage" — now known as Mike Rice Syndrome — that thrills the audience. Michigan guard Trey Burke will be leading the Michigan pack. He may not have 18-inch claws but he knows how to slash through defenses and toss up the trey. Now that he has picked up virtually every player of the year award, a good name for Burke could could be The Sweeper. Just watch those timeout calls Wolverines or Jackman might be tweeting about Les Miserables next time.
